ARARIO GALLERY CHEONAN is holding the solo exhibition of HAN Manyoung (b. 1946, Korea) “Passage between the Real and the Unreal” through March 3, 2024. The exhibition looks into the master artist’s oeuvre of works of the past half century.

HAN is an artist who has formed his own artistic method through free experimentation and innovation, while showing the technical properties of various styles such as surrealism and hyperrealism but without being bound by any of them. He appropriates ready-made images and objects that are not logically related to each other, such as scenes from old famous paintings or magazines, old machine parts and smartphone components. HAN uses them as formative elements to establish relationships in time and space, his works moving freely between East and West, past and present, art and daily life, creation and reproduction, figuration and abstraction and reality and unreality.

This large-scale exhibition brings together around 70 works from the artist’s early pieces from the 1970s to his most recent creations. It will be an opportunity to explore Han’s unique artistic world in depth.

HAN Manyoung was born in Seoul in 1946, and graduated from the Department of Painting at Hongik University. He received a master’s degree from the Department of Art Education at the Graduate School of Education at Konkuk University. After retiring as a professor at Sungshin Women’s University in 2014, he currently serves as an honorary professor. Beginning with the Hankook Gallery, Seoul in 1979, he has held solo exhibitions at Gana Art Center, Rho Gallery, and ARARIO MUSEUM in Space, etc. and also participated in numerous group exhibitions including the Bienal de São Paulo, Asian Contemporary Art Exhibition, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, Total Museum of Contemporary Art, and Seoul Museum of Art.
